Bible: Deut 11:13-17

11:13 Now, if you pay close attention 1  to my commandments that I am giving you today and love 2  the Lord your God and serve him with all your mind and being, 3  11:14 then he promises, 4  “I will send rain for your land 5  in its season, the autumn and the spring rains, 6  so that you may gather in your grain, new wine, and olive oil. 11:15 I will provide pasture 7  for your livestock and you will eat your fill.”

Exhortation to Instruction and Obedience

11:16 Make sure you do not turn away to serve and worship other gods! 8  11:17 Then the anger of the Lord will erupt 9  against you and he will close up the sky 10  so that it does not rain. The land will not yield its produce, and you will soon be removed 11  from the good land that the Lord 12  is about to give you.
